Then, you finally give birth to your squirmy, slimy, adorable baby. That is a wonderful moment in and of itself, and as you start to recover from labor, you realize that the world is wonderful again. You can jump in the air with glee without hurting your back (after six weeks of healing)! You can roll over and sleep in any position you want! You can pound a glass of wine after you finish breast-feeding! Yes, life is good. More

Save The Children has put a real, live birth, featuring a real woman and a real baby, in their latest commercial. More
When it was clear that we had no intentions of terminating the pregnancy, we got the consolation prize spiel (“children with Down Syndrome are loving, gentle souls…very unlike children with Autism.”) Ultimately, we were told not to expect much of our baby moving forward through infancy and childhood, and into adulthood. “She’ll probably never grow up to be more than a Wal-Mart greeter,” said the doctor.

I have been out of school for quite some time, so it’s been years since I’ve done legit homework. Even when I was in high school, I absolutely hated homework. More
When I was pregnant with my first son two years ago and my due date was drawing closer, my husband and I began chatting about how family would play a role in the birth. Since pregnancy was so new to me, I felt pretty anxious about Game Day. I didn’t know exactly what was going to happen, and I didn’t need visitors grimacing or cheering me on. Nope, nope, nope. More
Five Things I’d rather do that give birth to a 15 pound baby. More
I love love love love interior designer and stylist Emily Henderson. I became aware of her through her awesome blog (Do not miss her posts on how to shop your local Craigslist), but she also won season 5 of HGTV Design Star and hosts a show called Secrets From A Stylist on HGTV. So she’s kinda famous. But that doesn’t stop her from bringing the charming realness on her blog, especially now that’s getting ready to deliver her first child. Reason #679845 why I love Emily? Her latest post on her “birth plan”—you’ll see why I put birth plan in quotes.
After all, this is a person who will be there when you are (hopefully) pushing a baby out of your vagina. More

Is it crazy that I’m secretly a little envious of these women who just unexpectedly go into labor and pop out children in the weirdest places? It happened again – this time at a Barnes & Noble in California. More
Your daughter loves you, and she needs you now, to be her mom. She needs you to love her with a ferociousness and unconditionality like you did when she was a baby and you held her in your arms and marveled at what immense joy you could feel over something not much older than the milk you have in your refrigerator.

It’s bad enough that we all have to feign interest when these Z-list celebs have babies and even worse when you realize that for the new few months, a lot of the news we are exposed to will be all about how fast Kim Kardashian and Jessica have lost their baby weight. I think it would be super cool if they made the announcement that they have decided not to lose any weight at all, and will maybe even gain a few pounds and they focus on what should be the most important things, their new babies More
How cool is that? Finland has one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world because parents who have the box no longer sleep with their babies, thus reducing the risk of SIDS. I’m a huge advocate of co-sleeping, and with this box you could probably just put it next to you on the bed instead of worrying about rolling over on your baby. This whole thing just sounds so pro-parent, like they really want to give parents the things they need so they can get off to a good start. More
